Running Gun
Recorded by Marty Robbins
Writter by Tompall Glaser and Jim Glaser

C F
I rode out of Kansas City going south to Mexico
G7 F C
I was running dodging danger left the girl that I love so
F
Far behind lay Kansas City and the past that I had earned
G7 F C
Twenty notches on my six gun marked the lessons I had learned

F C
Many times I sold my fast guns for a place to lay my head
F C G7
Till the nights begin to haunt me by the men that I left dead
C F
Couldn't stand it any longer with this life that I'd begun
G7 F C
So I said goodbye to Jeannie and became a running gun

F
I rode into Amarillo as the sun sank in the west
G7 F C
My thoughts in Kansas City and the girl that I loved best
F
As I smiled and kissed her gently and then turned away to go
G7 F C
Said I'd send for her to meet me when I'd reached old Mexico

F C
I had barely left the saddle and my foot just touched the ground
F C G7
When a cold voice from the shadows told me not to turn around
C F
Said he knew about my fast gun knew the price paid by the law
G7 F C
Challenged by a bounty hunter so I turned around to draw

F
I knew some day I'd meet him for his hand like lightning flashed
G7 F C
My own gun stood in leather as his bullet tore its path
F
As my strength was slowly fading I could see him walk away
G7 F C
And I knew that where I lie tonight he too must lie someday

F C
Now the crowd is slowly gathering but my eyes are growing dim
F C G7
And my thoughts return to Jeannie and the home that we had planned
C F
Oh please tell her won't you mister that she's still the only one
G7 F C
But a woman's love is wasted when she loves a running gun
